04-13-09, 05:16 PM
I was planning to build a ITX case for living room HTPC.

I'm trying to find information if stock AMD CPU fans will fit ini ITX case.

Case - Rosewill Smart RS-MI-01 BK Mini ITX Tower/ Desktop Computer Case with 250W

Board - ZOTAC GF8200-C-E AM2+/AM2 NVIDIA GeForce 8200 Mini ITX

Memory - Transcend 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit

CPU - AMD Athlon 64 X2 7750 Kuma 2.7GHz Socket AM2+ 95W Dual-Core black edition

DVD-Rom and HDD i have already

Anyone have any experience of stock AMD fan will fit?

Per the customer reviews, the stock quad-core hsf for intel procs fit in there. I would think that the stock hsf for amd procs would fit too.

Alternatively, you can always get a low-profile one :) They are not that expensive.

The main issue is air-flow and how much heat you are getting out of the system. Will you be running cool n quiet? I do in my HTPC. It keeps the temps a lot cooler than when I was running it at 100%.

It really doesn't look like it'd fit. If it does, the airflow is probably pretty poor.

I was going to get something like that for my HTPC but the thing that scared me away is the odd power supply size and the "off brand" power supply.

Good luck finding a replacement if it ever dies. I ended up just getting something a little bigger in Micro-ATX with a solid 350W Sparkle Micro-ATX PSU. Its a solid unit and its easy to replace.
